NWWC Under 16 Flames – Saturday 15th October

Captain, Jesse D’Arcy-Slade, won the toss and the Flames elected to bowl, hoping to make the most of the windy conditions.  St Albans batted well, putting up a decent total of 174/3.  India Buchanan was the pick of the bowlers, with 1 for 20 – including a maiden!  She and Jesse combined to lure St Albans’ top batter into a good catch at mid-off. 

The Flames struggled to gain momentum in their turn to bat, eventually making 78/8 (effectively all out, with one player retired hurt).  Grace Darnbrough persevered well, facing 39 balls for her 5 runs, while Jesse top-scored with a well-compiled 32.  Jesse was rewarded with Player of the Match for her all-round performance.  St Albans spread the wickets around, with Biena Hickford the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets from 9 balls.  St Albans deserved the win; our girls deserved a medal and a cup of soup for persevering in the freezing conditions. 🥶🥶🥶
